7400 VT PLUS (Vertical Tillage)
America's Favorite Vertical Tillage Machine
Isn’t it time that excessive residue levels and cold wet spring soils be addressed in your operation? Put the 7400 VT Plus Series from Landoll to work and increase your return on investment with higher yields, a direct result of earlier planting and more uniform emergence.
Perfectly Sizes and Mixes Residue & Soil
A great deal of research went into the design of the 7400 VT Plus Series. Determining the perfect gang angle, disc blade, and spacing was addressed head on by the engineering staff. The results are the ideal vertical tillage unit that has the ability to anchor residue, work at shallow depths, mix and blend the soil, kill weeds and level ruts from previous operations. The smooth blades stay sharp longer and handle rocks and stones better than ripple or fluted blades.
Spring or Fall? It’s Your Choice
Better return on investment is what multi-tasking is all about. The Landoll 7400 VT Plus Series offers you a true multi-tasking tool. The VT can be used in fall, spring, or in both seasons! In fall, the VT allows the decomposition process to begin by mixing just the right amount of soil with the residue. The residue is anchored down to prevent wind and water erosion during the winter months. In spring, the VT prepares the perfect seedbed. Because the VT can perform at precise working depths, it can be set to run no deeper than where the seed will be placed during planting.
Durable and Reliable
The Landoll 7400 VT Plus Series is built in true Landoll style…precision, laser cut frame components that embrace the technology of robotic welding to its fullest. Durability is built in, not added on. Incorporation of UHMW polymer in the lift axles provides a maintenance-free feature that eliminates daily greasing. Trunnion mount bearings are used throughout the disc assemblies and are covered by a 3-year warranty. Gang angles are fixed at 10 degrees on the front and rear. Disc blades are spaced at 7” on all gangs on all sizes. The blades are 22” low concavity; blade thickness is either 6 ga. or ¼”. The self-leveling hitch and single point depth control add to the list of items that extend the reliability of the VT Plus beyond the competition. Oversized tires on walking tandem axles carry the load and allow for precision depth control across the entire width of the machine. Pivoting gauge wheels on the front of the wings contribute to controlled depth of the wings even at higher speeds.
Sized to Fit
The VT Plus Series is available in sizes from 13’ 10” to 49’ 9”. The units up to 33 feet are 3 section folding while the units from 39’ 9” to 49’ 9” feet are 5 section folding. The 3 section units transport under 17’ 11”. The 5 section machines transport at 17’ 6”. Transport heights range from 9’ 10” to 13’ 11”. Horsepower requirements for the VT Plus Series is 10 HP per foot.
With proper depth and timing, the 7400 Series VT Plus from Landoll can minimize moisture loss and improve seed to soil contact. In the photo below, the VT made a pass on the left at 2" deep at 8 MPH; the right is no-tilled into standing canola stubble. The results are quite evident!
